Kennesaw Mountain

This year marks the 150th anniversary of many Civil War battles, including some fought in North Georgia.  Kennesaw Mountain, just a couple of miles from my home, was one of the last battles before the Union Army made it's way into Atlanta.  The area is now a large national park, with many of the cannons and earthworks used in the battle preserved, and there is a small museum as well.  The park is now mostly used for recreation; there are walking, biking and riding trails throughout, but it's also a great place to visit if you are interested in this time in our history.
